Michael Young started at first base Friday for the eighth time this season, while Mitch Moreland got his fourth start as the designated hitter.
"I don't want Michael to get stale DH'ing," manager Ron Washington said. "I may end up giving Kinsler a day [at DH] so [Young] can play second base. I just thought it was time to get Michael back on the field."
Two weeks after winning the HP Byron Nelson Championship, Jason Dufner took a two-stroke lead at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial after firing a 6-under 64. Dufner, 11-under for the tournament, threw out the first pitch before Friday's game against the Blue Jays.
